The International Cancer Control Partnership (ICCP)
CGH Program/Initiative Type: Cancer Control Planning
The ICCP is a collaboration of governments, United Nations agencies, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that work together to reduce the global burden of cancer by ensuring countries have national cancer control plans. The partnership, initiated by CGH, took form in November 2012 and officially launched in South Africa in November 2013. The partner organizations work together to support national cancer control plan development and implementation.
- Encourage decision-makers to prioritize cancer control
- Help countries develop cancer control plans
- Coordinate efforts to develop and disseminate cancer control planning materials and tools, technical assistance, and training to address data gaps (when identified)

- A searchable database of published national cancer plans
